Nearly 1 million Insignia pressure cookers are being recalled by Best Buy due to burn risks

Best-buy-recall-110223.2e16d0ba.fill-735x490Best Buy is recalling about 930,000 Insignia pressure cookers.

Inaccurate volume markings inside the pot can cause overfilling, resulting in hot food and liquid erupting when the pressure cooker is opened, posing a burn risk to consumers.

Best Buy has received 31 reports of the contents erupting, including 17 reports of burn injuries, some of which were second-degree and severe burns.

This recall involves Insignia multi-function pressure cookers and inner cooker pots sold separately as replacements. Click here for the model numbers.

The pressure cookers were sold at Best Buy stores nationwide and online at and from October 2017 through June 2023. The cost was between $50 and $120.

Consumers should always check that: the inner pot isn’t filled beyond two-thirds capacity when pressure cooking, the lid is locked before pressure cooking is started, and the floating locking valve has dropped before attempting to open the lid when pressure cooking, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled pressure cookers and contact Best Buy for a free replacement of the inner pot and floating locking valve.
